The reason why Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Minister of Interior Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, Minister of Works Babatunde Raji Fashola, and other officials serving under President Muhammadu Buhari were unable to visit Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who was in London for medical treatment, has now been revealed by the government of Nigeria.
Following the examination, it was determined that the presidential procedure forbade any of the cabinet members from paying Tinubu a visit because President Buhari had already paid him a visit, which was discovered after the investigation.
President Buhari paid a visit to Tinubu on August 12, 2021, according to the president’ s office.
Professor Osinbajo, Vice President Fashola, and Governor Aregbesola were reportedly barred from meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in London because of Buhari’ s prior visit to the country.
Mr. Sola Fasure, the minister’ s Media Adviser, indicated that he was unable to pay a visit to Tinubu in London due to etiquette issues on his part.
Fasure said: ” If the President has gone, no Minister, not even the Vice President, can go. Aregbesola’ s relationship with Tinubu is mutually beneficial and reinforcing.
” Tinubu and Aregbesola are in constant talk. The last time they talked, it lasted for more than one hour. There is no other reason for him (Aregbesola) not to visit Tinubu than just protocol.
” Anybody or group of persons who wants to make case out of the visitation issue is either ignorant or mischievous.
” Anyway, I can see ignorance and mischief from some of the posts I read online concerning the visitation. ”
After his three month medical trip, Asiwaju landed in lagos on Friday evening, this was confirmed by his office.
” He has returned fully healed from the knee surgery and fully committed to doing his modest part of advancing the cause of progressive democratic good governance throughout our beloved nation, ” his office disclosed.
